We are Brook and John – partners in life, and now in business as the current owners of Madrona Hill. We have spent most of our lives in the Northwest and are so excited to live and work in the city that we love, and the neighborhood that we have called home for the past chunk of years. John and Brook have lived all over inner and outer Portland – but the heart and pulse of the city continued to call to us. We moved to the Kenton neighborhood in early 2010 and were regular customers of Madrona Hill.
Throughout Brook’s previous adventures, her drive and desire has always been to own a business, to be pivotal in the growth of a business and to be able to impact customers’ lives in a perhaps overlooked or unexpected way.
John’s background has always been focused on his passion for data and analysis. He lends his analytic abilities to Madrona as our tax man and our treat man, making sure the quality of the pastries and coffee is consistent and market friendly.
Our love for great wine, food, chocolates, coffee and friends continues to guide our decisions for the bettering of the business. We hope to see you and meet you soon!
